"his leadership has been instrumental in the significant progress that has been made in bringing greater security to the afghan people and making sure that afghanistan never becomes a safe haven again for terrorists. he is entitled to due process in this matter." that was the statement from leon panetta about general allan. also in the news, the chairwoman of the senate intelligence committee said yesterday that she would put out a subpoena for the general's testimony, if need be. she said she would go as far as to order a vote on the floor of the senate if the administration does not cooperate. part of the hearings that the intelligence -- intelligence committee will be holding later this week. the house foreign affairs committee also has a hearing, although the intelligence proceeding hearings will be closed. this is a look at who is testifying this morning from "the washi
to go. secretary leon panetta is likely to go at some point although he may stay through the sequestration tlaks which would mean $55 billion to the pentagon. those are big cabinet members and they are likely to go which will take over some dominoes inside the administration as people move up to fill those. inside the west wing, he may have a new chief of staff. that would be his fourth that he has named. these are times when he can look at those working for him. only two cabinet members left in the first four years. he can begin to tailor his staff to what he wants to pursue. host: eric holder the attorney general has said he will stay on. guest: that is right. he has had a mixed record. he has had a mixed relationship with the white house. he would not be the easiest guy to ask to leave. if he wants to stay, i imagine he would probably stay. host: "the wall street journal" says this -- margaret talev, who replaces let's start with hillary clinton? guest: it is a great question. i think the conventional wisdom is right in that there are two candidates that are being look
clinton and leon panetta. they held as as a major leap forward in bilateral cooperation. and an import a new frontier in that state's rebounds to the asia-pacific area. and an update on the david petearus situation. leading investigators to a questionable relationship between the tampa florida socialite and the general commander of the war in afghanistan. their main question was a national security threatened? the extramarital affair was between the general petraus and paula broadwell. is a sense harassing e-mails to a woman -- who they say send harassing e-mails to a woman, jill kelley. jill kelley treated thousands of applications messages with the general john allen. possible evidence of another inappropriate relationship. defense secretary leon panetta speaking earlier today and australia says he has continued confidence in a general john allen to remain as commander of united states forces in afghanistan, despite his connection to the scandal. we will hear more on the scandal later today when president obama holds his news conference. you can hear it live at 1:30 eastern on c-span
a crimp in any plans to exit immediately. with leon panetta refusing to indicate whether he will leave or stay put, the president will have to fill the pentagon pose a top civilian job. we are looking at the future of the obama cabinet as well as other positions like the director of the cia. david joins us from wisconsin. we are talking about the national security team. caller: i am a veteran, 67 years old. i do not see a national security team. president obama is commander in chief. he sat there and watched four guys get killed on tv and not even an effort was made to rescue them. that is pretty disgusting. there was no national security. that is basically my opinion. host: what do you want to see happen now? caller: they should have an investigation and get to the bottom of it. why all the lies. host: is that congress's role? should they have an outside body? caller: it is congress's role as long as they have a bipartisan committee. it is interesting that a lot of the politicians are retiring and leaving. i think congress should set up a committee to check it out. host: from the asso
